Century Palace

 For my mum and dad's anniversary, the four of us headed off to Century Palace Chinese Restaurant for a nice sit down dinner. The food was great, service friendly and fast! Since it was a weekday, it wasn't too busy which meant more attentive waiters and a more pleasant atmosphere.

Here's what we ordered! 

Peking duck, sliced at the table

While we waited, mum decided to take a photo of me as I took on of her. ARTSY!

Yummy! Peking duck served with handmade sesame flour wraps, hoisin sauce, carrots and scallions

Ta-da! It's got everything in it. Delicious!

My family loves roasted duck. We have it often :)

Shark fin Seafood soup

This was an interestingly good dish- It was steamed eggs with lobster fat mixed in served with a soy based sauce and scallions.

Soup with red vinegar. I love vinegar!

Baby bok choy with dried scallops and field mushrooms

Remember that roasted duck?

Well after it was sliced, the rest of the meat was cooked with diced vegetables!
Lettuce wrap with duck. Yum!

Than it was lobster time. It was about 6.5 pounds and was cooked with Maggie sauce and garlic and was fab.

As if that wasn't enough, fresh fish!

I don't remember what kind it was, but as messy as it looks, it was fresh and the meat was silky and soft.
As with most Chinese dinners, dessert was served when we were done. We had red bean soup, which isn't one of my favourites- at all. I skipped it, thus forgot to take a photo of it. Whoops! Overall, Century Palace was a nice place to have dinner. We're return customers so chances are, we'll continue going there! 

As a bonus, there was a huge party happening in their banquet room. We got to listen to some...awesome karaoke-ing towards the end of the meal. It was hilarious and I couldn't figure out if the man singing was singing horrendously on purpose, or if he really didn't know that was was completely tone deaf and thought he was belting the song out like a certain Céline. I left in tears. I couldn't stop laughing!
